The new winter issue of New York Weddings is finally on newstands, and I can’t stress enough how much everyone needs to get one for themselves! There were so many helpful hints and ideas for having a perfect New York wedding….I couldn’t even begin to explain all of them here. Do you remember the bridesmaids casting call a few months back? Well here are the results!

I got an email yesterday from Jonathan and Whitney from Brown Sugar Design about a new series they will be featuring on their blog for the next few months entitled the “Memoirs of the Perpetual Bridesmaid“. Their friend will be posting about what a wedding is like from the bridesmaids point of view….could be VERY eye-opening….check it out and check out Brown Sugar Design’s portfolio while you’re at it!

Finally, I received my issue of Eliza Magazine, complete with wedding section. After searching EVERY magazine stand I could find in NYC and Brooklyn to no avail, I gave in and got myself a subscription. I especially liked the Rock and Roll photo shoot….I glad they found wedding dresses that were both demure AND sexy at the same time. I’m pretty crazy over those combat boots too!

While perusing Barnes and Noble this weekend, I fell upon BOND Alternative Wedding magazine over in the wedding section. Seeing the 3 different covers featuring gay and straight couples, I immediately bought an issue, ran home, and tore in. I think this is the magazine we’ve been waiting for people!! How great it is to finally see a magazine and website that embraces ALL couples! Issue Zero features an organic, green, and ecological theme. Its a limited edition run of 5000 copies so get yours quick.
THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ALTERNATIVE WEDDINGS
Bond features fashion for women and men from the catwalks of Milan, Paris, London and New York, interpreted in a modern wedding setting. Gone are the restrictive norms of traditional dress and the expectations of “something borrowed, something blue.” Bond offers a new look at everything from food and wine to flowers and decor to personalize your wedding to fit your lifestyle.
THE 21ST CENTURY COUPLE
At Bond we are dedicated to redefining the aesthetics of weddings for the new millenium. We do not seek to change the essence of what a union between two consenting adults means, but to offer a different light on how those ceremonies can be for the modern urban couple.
WE ARE OUR DEMOGRAPHIC
Bond’s international list of collaborators are gay, straight, metrosexual, black, brown, white, yellow, 25-45+ year-old urban dwellers in the fashion, design and wedding industries. We know our reader because we are our reader. Bond does not offer aesthetic advice that we would not take ourselves.
